Moto G success takes Motorola’s market share to six per cent

Last modified date

The Moto G has been a huge success, launching Motorola’s market share from almost nothing to 6% in just six months.

That’s according to data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech that shows that the bargain-of-the-year handset, which offers consumers such a decent specification phone for a fraction of the cost of other mid-range devices, has been a worthy success.

Frankly, it deserved to be a massive hit as I wrote when it was launched.

Even today it still represents exceptional value for money and offers the best Android experience of any similarly priced smartphone, as well as handsets priced a lot more.

It punches way above its weight and also provides battery life that is now a serious consideration for many when buying a new phone.

And the good news is that at Mobile World Congress, Motorola (soon to be part of Lenovo) was keen to say it will continue releasing products that have a high-specification at an affordable price.

With Qualcomm’s updated Snapdragon 410 chipset supporting both LTE (4G) and 5GHz Wi-Fi, it’s likely that the successor to the Moto G will be an even better package.
